The Use of Technology to Stalk / 4 April 2013

Presented By: BWJP

Date: Thursday, April 4, 2013
Time: 2:00pm - 3:30pm Central Time
Location: Your Desk

Presenter: Michelle M. Garcia, Director of the Stalking Resource Center.

Content: Recent research indicates that most stalking cases involve the use of some form of technology. The ongoing advancement of technology is providing stalkers with a sophisticated selection of tools. Stalkers are using a variety of telephone, surveillance, and computer technologies to monitor and harass current and former intimate partners. Some abusers install global positioning systems to discover their victim's real-time location with extraordinary accuracy, while others use telephones to leave hundreds of messages in a single day. Still others use online databases, electronic records, and web search engines to locate, track, and harass former partners. While stalkers' methods and choice of technologies vary, survivors report that they are experiencing stalking and abuse that is perpetrated with a high-tech twist.

This webinar will focus on some of the most common technologies used by stalkers such as cellphones, computers, cameras, and global positioning systems. Considerations for documentation and victim safety will also be discussed.
